Understanding the Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Cases

When it comes to filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, it is important to be aware of the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is the time limit within which a lawsuit must be filed after the incident or discovery of the medical malpractice. In Tennessee, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases is generally one year from the date of the malpractice or from the date the malpractice was discovered, with a maximum of three years from the date of the malpractice.

It is crucial to consult with an experienced Nashville medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your case is filed within the statute of limitations. Failing to file within the specified time frame can result in the loss of your right to seek compensation for your injuries and damages.
